(Orlando, FL) July 5, 2017 – Kix Mobile is delighted to announce a new store opening in Elmhurst, IL. The new corporate owned location is a store-in-a-store model, conveniently located inside a TechVoo Computer store.

“We are very excited to bring Kix Mobile to Elmhurst! We have big expansion plans for the Chicagoland market, and this is the first of many planned stores.” said Paul Wolbert, CEO of Kix Mobile. “Customers are seeking alternatives to purchasing high-priced new phones from the carriers, and we are eager to provide quality Certified Pre-Owned products, and our no tech, no fixing and no waiting Xchange-Repair™ services for them.”

Kix Mobile is changing the way you buy and repair mobile devices. Kix Mobile stores buy, sell, trade mobile devices, provide replacement Xchange-Repair™, sell accessories, and offers Pre-Paid phone plans. Taking advantage of the shift to replacement rather than repair – Kix Mobile Xchange-Repair™ is a new and innovative approach to device repair by providing fast and easy device and data exchange for one low price.  Typically, Xchange-Repair™ pricing is comparable to a standard repair shop fee. I.E. You hand a Kix team member your iPhone® or Samsung® with a broken camera and they hand you back a high quality Certified Pre-Owned phone with your data restored for an affordable flat fee. Why wait for hours to get your mobile device repaired; when Kix Mobile can swap it out and have you on your way in minutes!

According to a Morgan Stanley study, mobile technology is growing faster than any other industrial or technology segment has ever grown in human history. Backed by a world-class management team with nearly a 100 years of combined franchise experience, the founders of Kix Mobile have created and grown some of the most iconic brands in the world such as Massage Envy, U.S. Lawns, Ident-A-Kid, Computer Doctor/Expetec… and helped create the Geek Squad.
